I have a client who's running a SBS 2003 server form home. Everything was fine until they started getting problems with the exchange email not working and not being able to access shared folders. They could then not login in, password incorrect. I have tried logging in with the Administrator password but it keeps saying it's incorrect, although it's never been changed.
I have tried various software to reset or blank the password but still cannot gain access, either in normal or safemode. The only access was via a user account in Directory Service Restore Mode, but this gives very little access to anything. I have read about an option using the original disc's and repairing the install. Will it work for 2003?
I presume the programs I have used trinity rescue, windows password reset & windows password unlocker are just resetting the local admin account, even though it doesn't show in the list of option in these programs.
Any ideas on what I can try?
Thanks in advance
